1. Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney
One of the questions that we get asked most often is how do you pick a personal injury attorney? That is a great question to ask. What we tell most people is that you want to get an attorney who you feel most comfortable with. There are a lot of personal injury attorneys out there and picking one can be a daunting task. What you want to do is you want to call someone, have a conversation with them, and see how they can best fit your needs. Our office has over 35 years of experience handling personal injury cases just like yours. Feel free to reach out to us so that we can see how we can best help you in your situation.
2. Minimum Amount of Medical Bills
One of the main reasons why people are hesitant to reach out to an attorney is because they think to themselves, “I wasn’t that badly hurt. My medical bills aren’t that high, so I’m not sure whether or not I need to talk to an attorney.” Well, we always advise people that at least speaking to an attorney is going to be in your best interest so that you can see whether or not you should proceed. In most instances, no matter how small your case is, it’s one that’s worth pursuing to make sure that you get the money that you deserve. If you have any questions about whether or not your case is worth pursuing, feel free to contact us as soon as possible.
3. Personal Injury Case Timeline
Just the other day we got a phone call from a person who had had multiple surgeries and had been in the hospital for an extended period of time as a result of the negligence of another person. The first question they asked was how long it would take to settle the personal injury case. We told them that that’s a tough question to answer because every case is different. The most important thing in a personal injury case is not the money. It’s making sure that you get back to 100% and getting your medical condition back to the way it was before the accident happened.
Because of the fact that people are going to react differently to medical treatment and insurance companies are going to handle things differently, answering that question can be difficult. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, we can give you a realistic timeline of how long it will take to settle your personal injury case. If you have any questions concerning this, feel free to reach out to our office. We would love to speak to you about your case.
4. Personal Injury Case Going to Trial
One of the biggest concerns that people have in personal injury cases is whether or not they’re going to have to go to trial. Most people don’t want to go through the heartache and time that goes into preparing for litigation. Now, on average, most cases are able to settle without having to go to trial. There are, however, some situations in which insurance companies are not being reasonable or are unwilling to settle at an amount that we believe is favorable for you. As a result, sometimes you do have to go to trial. Our office has extensive experience handling personal injury cases at the trial level and getting favorable results for our clients. If you have a question about this, feel free to reach out to us, and we’ll be more than happy to discuss it with you in more depth.
